It is official, Jeannie Mai is dating rapper Jeezy, and the power couple is happily flaunting their love.
The Real co-host and the activist rapper made their first red carpet appearance at his inaugural SnoBall Gala, which was an event put together to raise funds for his non-profit Street Dreamz.
According to PEOPLE, Jeannie and her new beau walked into the event arm-in-arm and posed for several photos.
In January, rumors started spreading that the pair was dating after Malika Haqq posted a photo on social media where they seemed to be on a date.
Jeannie addresses the rumors by saying: “Jeezy and I hang out. He’s very special to me, so we don’t have a label to define what it is we’re doing. We’re just having a good time together.”
She added: “Real fam, you know I always keep it a little too real at this table. I promise you that when there is that one special boo, you will be the first to know from me.”
Fans are thrilled for the couple wants them to have a baby soon.
One person said: “I always knew she belonged with a black guy lol she always drooled over them on the show and wondered wtf she was doing with a white hickish guy lolNo surprise here! She looks happy, and I knew it was “thing” when she was blushing to talk about him on the show. How beautiful would those babies be 💙Get it, girl!”
Another commenter stated: “So happy for her, I remember when her other co-host and friends were around with their men, and she was left out I felt bad, so am happy for her. Let see if same will be said for black men dating Asia since when a black woman date a white man she becomes the topic for both men and woman. What I know is love has. No color so happy for her.”
